Question about 2000 Toyota Camry

Open Question

Very soft brake pedal on a 2000 Camry LE

Have tried two new master cylinders and new ABS actuator but pedal remains soft. Do not see any external leaks. ABS light now remains on. I have read about a rear ABS valve. Does this model car have one, where is it located and could this be the potentail problem?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Keith

I have bleed the rear brakes multiple times but still get air and "soft" pedal requiring multiple pumpimg. How do I bleed them if they are anti lock brakes? 2000 Isuzu Rodeo


It's pretty much the exact same process just remove your abs relays/fuses
if the brake bleeding doesn't work it sounds like you may need a new master cylinder

IF the hand brake activates through the caliper piston unit and it was necessary to screw the piston back in to fit the new pads then you will have to readjust the hand brake .. The may be a bleed nipple on the abs unit . It is not necessary to run the engine to bleed the brakes. IF you used a clamp to push the piston back in then there may be crap in the master cylinder that is affecting the operation of the non-return valve at the outlet of the master-cylinder.

Soft brakes


You have a leak in the brake system, need to check the medal brake lines that run through the frame rail and goes to the back wheels, It is common for those to rust into towards the back. If lines are okay then check the wheel cylinders. If you are not low on brake fluid then you probley have a bad master cylinder.

try bleeding the master cylinder at the lines first as it indicates that there is still air in the pistons
loosen one line at a time and gently apply the brakes until any air bubbles come out tighten the line before releasing the brake pedal
do it for the other line and then bleed all the brakes starting at the longest line first and ending at the shortest line

2006 toyota landcruiser brake goes limp, pedal goes soft


Replace your master cylinder. It is leaking out of the back of the master cylinder and into the booster. If you unbolt the master and carefully look into the booster, chances are you will see brake fluid. Replace it, bleed the entire system, and enjoy your truck again.

Brake servo master cyl flexing and moving to bulk head making the foot brake pedle spungy soft insufistant reserve travel


I think your saying you have a spongy pedal. have the brake system checked for leaks ( externally as well as internally eg master cylinder) and wear. If a-ok then have them bleed the system.
Now if your saying there is a problem with pedal travel
that has to do with pedal rod adjustment( which is only adjusted after replacing a master cylinder or booster)

There may be air in the lines. Bleed all your brakes starting at the farthest wheel from the resevoir, and finishing at the closest one. Try the pedal after its bled. If the pedal still feels soft or travels to the floor there may be a pinhole leak that may be spraying on the underbody of the car, or the seals in the master cylinder are gone filling the vacuum booster(if equipped). Air compresses more than oil so if bleeding works that may be the problem.

Brake pedal goes too far to the floor on initial application, pumping brings the pedal up, bled several times


Sounds like an internal leak in the master cylinder, an external brake fluid leak (such as a leaking brake line), or extreme misadjustment or binding of the calipers or drums. Any could be the case, and you can eliminate the last 2 rather easily. Do you see any sign of fluid coming from any of the brake lines? If not, move to adjustments. Check the calipers for bound up caliper pins and if equiped with rear drum brakes, the adjustment and condition of the rear shoes. After that, go right for the throat and replace the master cylinder. Be sure to bench bleed it before you install it, and if you have ABS, make sure you also bleed the ABS system, OR if you can't bleed the ABS system have the new master cylinder ready to install, and remove the brake lines as quickly as possible from the old master and have a friend hold thier fingers over the ends of the lines. I do this quite a bit at my shop, and it's VERY rare that I actualy need to bleed the ABS after replacing a master cylinder if little to no air gets in the brake lines.

04 free star soft pedal has new master cylinder pads and rotors


the master cyl must be filled and bled before install.after installing new bled master cyl,bleed all calipers.once you are sure there is no air left in system then you will need a scan tool to perform a abs service bleed.if you do perform the abs service bleed with a scan tool the brake pedal will be soft and start to fade.
